intro >> with a little lag (so as to not make a precedent), the no type online label is celebrating 2 years of offering the most singular music available online in an otherwise pluralist context. coinciding with the event is the launch of a whole new web site design.
& now, debuting its third year of existence, no type continues to move forward with its critically acclaimed selection of today's most interesting oddball (& unfortunately so far unknown) music.
032: james schidlowsky >>
debuting the onslaught is _james schidlowsky_, a montréal resident who has been shaping & capturing drones with surgical precision & umbilical passion on the course of 5 self-released albums & a slew of live performances in various galleries & hip spaces such as the casa del popolo. the 5 tracks he presents on his debut no type release Previous>>Next  are complete reworkings from older material. guitars & other noises navigating through many, many effect pedals. & you can bet it sounds amazing.
033: matrix assimilation >>
eryk salvaggio aka _matrix assimilation_ has made 3 singles for no type so far, all of which showcase a particular aspect of his hyperactive mindframe. his fourth offering is called Acid Vaudeville  & it is a complex, mind-boggling musical tale of ancient 78rpm samples set to an insistently caustic breakbeat rhythm ~ certainly eryk's most accomplished work so far. make sure to pump up the volume & by all means enjoy.
034: sine fiction >>
_sine fiction_ is a project started by _aimé dontigny_ [_napalm jazz_] & it is based around the characters of a given science-fiction novel. the first installment of this project takes its inspiration from russian writer yevgeny zamyatin's classic novel we , a novel from the beginning of the century which was the inspiration behind huxley's _brave new world_ & orwell's _1984_. but the music? bubbly & bleepy, evocative rhythmic electronic music very unlike anything i've heard before.
press >> mp3 may have gone past "revolutionary" status & to the hands of people with large sums of money at hand, its convenience & widespread acceptance from everyone involved with the internet has produced a real change in music distribution in the past 2 years. as the (probably) first online label in canada, opening on october 1st 1998, no type has maintained a low profile amidst the media crap & dodgy opportunities. despite this wilful lack of visibility, the last year has seen three verbose (& enthusiastic) articles on no type, first from _ios smolders_ of vital weekly, then from _rob geary_ of grooves magazine & the other from _jeremy keens_ of ampersand etc.
next week >> that's of course just the beginning. on our next update, you may expect three additional excursions into the most exciting little known aspects of music's no man's land. debuting on no type will be a 5-track ep of scratchy anti-tones from _viratone ballad_, entitled _sideworm_ ; & in a not entirely sonically unrelated vein, a new episode of _eucci_, _pershing square_ , will be made available for your enjoyment. & not least the next update shall see the most welcome return of longtime member _oeuf korreckt_ with _shibuya without end_  so that the old school meets the new school & make friends.
thought >> no type: we are pacifiers. don't you feel pacified?
